About Us :

  • The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. We do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and the countries we work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust. We work with over 100 countries across the world in the fields of arts and culture, English language, education and civil society. Each year we reach over 20 million people face-to-face and more than 500 million people online, via broadcasts and publications. Founded in 1934, we are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter and a UK public body.
  • We opened in Algeria in 1962 (officially in 1981) and moved back office in British Embassy during the 1990s, re-opening with a greater public interface in 2006. The operation is very much focussed on the Education, and English and Exams SBUs, and delivers smaller arts and society projects.
  • A Teaching Centre opened in April 2015 and has grown rapidly. Following the signing of a bilateral cooperation agreement between the UK and Algerian governments our work supporting the reform agendas of the ministries of education and higher education, most notably in English, has increased. We are a trusted partner and service provider to those wishing to access UK education, international qualifications and English language expertise.
  • Examinations work focuses on providing access to high quality UK qualifications to Algerian customers, thereby facilitating the building of relationships with our target audiences, and improving the employment prospects of young Algerians, whether at home or abroad.
  • The British Council is an equal opportunities and diversity employer, and the post-holder will play a role in ensuring that Equality, Diversity and Inclusion polices are consistently applied throughout the operation.
  • The British Council has a fundamental duty of care of all children engaged in activities with us under our mandatory Child Protection Policy. All our employees must be familiar with and follow the Child Protection Code of Conduct. The British Council affirms the position that all children have the right to be protected from all forms of abuse as set out in article 19, UNCRC 1989.
